of Chilean seafood industry leader Camanchaca, has added three new exciting items to the retail product line that will allow consumers to enjoy restaurant quality seafood at home.With the success of their Ocean Raised® Atlantic Salmon, Wild Caught Langostino Lobster Tails, and Mussel varieties, Pier 33 Gourmet has added new products: two flavorful marinated salmon options and wild Argentine RedShrimp.

A perfect addition to the Ocean Raised Salmon product line, both of the prepared salmon options are seasoned to perfection and frozen at the peak of freshness. “Pier 33 Gourmet is always looking for ways to serve our loyal consumers top quality, seafood options, and these two products are made to the highest standards,” says Cesar Lago, President of Camanchaca Inc.
For fans of shrimp, Pier 33 Gourmet is proud to announce a new line of top-quality Wild Argentine Red Shrimp that will be caught and packaged through an exclusive joint venture with industry leader, Krustagroup. Unlike most of the shrimp consumed in the US, Argentine Red Shrimp is a wild variety of shrimp. It is caught in the frigid waters of the Argentine Patagonia and has a naturally occurring red pigmentation present in the raw and cooked state which is a result of carotenoids found in the shell. These succulent and flavorful shrimp have thetexture and flavor of lobster distinguishing it from the majority of shrimp on the market – which are from warm waters.
Staying true to its mission of providing US consumers with convenient, healthy, gourmet seafood options, Pier 33 Gourmet’s latest creations are bound to become staples for seafood enthusiasts. “We are excited to build on our popular Ocean Raised® Salmon offerings and to enter the biggest seafood segment in the US with our shrimp products.”
